Memphis University School 

^y± s the school's ever-expanding public relations department says, "For more than a 

hundred years at Memphis University School, the doors have been open for students interested 
in becoming well-rounded young men." 

Even though to people who are not a part of this school, this slogan seems like just 
another advertising gimmick, to the students this aphorism rings true. We know how well our 
education here prepares us for the future. MUS promises the best education in the city of 
Memphis, if not the entire region. Students choose from almost 20 A.P. courses that give them 
credits for college, and our college guidance department places almost all students in one of 

their top choices. 

And this preparation is not just academic. From the training future journalists experience 
with the Owl's Hoot to the preparation for law our Mock Trial team receives, MUS students 
constantly have new doors opened for them. 

MUS graduates always point out how their attending this school has opened doors for 
them. The MUS experience provides lasting friendships and lifelong memories which all students 
are grateful for. The doors that are opened everyday at Memphis University School are what we 
on the yearbook staff hope you will remember as you flip through this year's Owl.

Kemmons Wilson was born in January 1913, in Osceola, Arkansas, the son of a 
prominent insurance salesman. When his father died nine months after his birth, young 
Kemmons moved to Memphis and was raised by his mother. Despite dropping out of high 
school, Mr. Wilson succeeded in business through his legendary work ethic, rising from 
selling popcorn in a local theater to owning a Homebuilding business. In 1952 he founded the 
Holiday Inn hotel franchise, forever changing the face of travel. 

Mr. Wilson will be remembered by MUS students for his remarkable philanthropy 
and his interesting and informative chapel speeches. He has left a legacy at the school in the 
form of the Kemmons Wilson Leadership Center, where future students will go to meet with 
Guidance Counselors.

The choice for this summer's show was not just 
your typical MUS production. Matt Kidd, the director an 
a recent alumnus, wanted to push the envelope at MUS a 
try a musical with more adult subject matter, that dealt wit 
racier situations, and had an element of comedy in it, so h 
selected Chicago, a musical about adultery, murder, and 
betrayal in 1920's Chicago. 

White Station graduate Morgan Scott took on the 
lead role of Roxie Hart. Last seen at MUS as the title 
character in Evita, Morgan wowed audiences with her 
portrayal of the sinful girl. Houston Hagewood played 
Fred Casely, Roxie' s adulterous lover. Amos Hart, Roxie 
loser of a husband, was played by recent graduate Adam 
Del Conte. Tarn Riggs, daughter of MUS's own Dr. Bae 
wonderfully portrayed Roxie Hart's rival in crime, Velma 
Kelly. The barely affordable and highly self-righteous 
lawyer, Billy Flynn, was played by MUS alumnus Justin 
Willingham. The Matron Mama Morton (Sally Kroeker) i 
also met up with as the play progresses as well as an 
important leader in news media, Mary Sunshine (recent 
alumnus Cody Jameson). Adam Del Conte cleverly steak 
the show in the second act with his self-pitying "Mr. 
Cellophane". Also featured were Courtney Bras well 
(Cordova High School), Christen Gilmore, Katie Praschei 
Rebecca Baer (another daughter of Dr. Baer), Chloe Lack 
(SMS Senior), Stephanie Vieron, Kevin Murphy, Philip

Hughen, Kenny Hickman (MUS alumnus), Zack Stacey, and Matt Kidd. A major 
part of the production of Chicago was, its choreography, so Courtney Oliver, a 
esident company member of Playhouse on the Square was hired, as was a band 
with Michael Meeks as the leader and musical director. The combination of 
complex choreography and show stopping tunes called for long hours of summer 
rehearsals leading up to two weekends of shows. With costumes created by Mr. 
Eikner, under the technical direction of Mr. Saunders, and under the stage- 
managing of recent graduate Christian Schmitt, the show was ready to open. With 
six weekend performances and one "pay what you can performance", the cast of 
Chicago "Razzle Dazzled" audiences. Chicago was said by some to have had 
some of the best talent on the MUS stage seen at one time.

Fall Fest 


It was the second of November, 
that day I'll always remember, yes I will. 
Cause that was the day that Fall Fest 
died. When describing Fall Fest the 
words miserable and disastrous aren't 
usually heard; this year it was hard not to 
hear them. Despite Weir's constant chal- 
lenging of God to stop the rain from 
ruining his precious baby, the weather 
dampened the mood for the first time in 
six years. However, the return of mud 
wrestling, a long-standing Fall Fest 
tradition, brought smiles to the faces of 
all in attendance.

This year's football season started with high expectations and 
aspirations with the Commercial Appeal's predicting a visit to the 
Clinic Bowl. The season started out slowly with the first game against 
Melrose at the Liberty Bowl being postponed because of inclement 
weather. That game was a tough game that the team believed they 
should not have lost. The next two games against Jackson Prep and 
Harding were complete victories for the good guys. 

The Jackson Prep game started out with an exciting 78-yard 
touchdown run by Derek Clenin. After three more touchdown runs 
by Clenin and a touchdown pass to Hazlehurst the game turned into 
a rout. After a tough loss to the continual thorn in our side, 
Brentwood and an embarrassing loss to the Saints of Briarcrest the 
team re- vamped their effort to make it to the State Championship. 
Two of the next three games were shutouts in which the team scored 
more than 25 points. The other game was a sound beating of 
Montgomery Bell at their homecoming. After a dominating win 
over McCallie the team faced a talented Purple Wave team. 

In the most exciting game of the year a game that seemed over 
early ended up being decided by an amazing blocked kick by 
Clenin. With a bye in the first round of the playoffs and the second 
seat in the division we were in one of the best positions possible. In 
what was to be the final game of the season against a team we had 
already beaten, MBA, the Owls fought hard until the end, but they 
fell a touchdown short of the Clinic Bowl. Next year's Owls, unlike 
the last two years, will not have most of the starters returning, 
leaving a void to be filled by future stars of MUS football.

MUS golf has a long 
tradition of excellence, both in 
regional and state competition. This 
year was no anomaly, as the 
eleven-man squad again showed a 
fine performance, representing 
MUS. to the finest degree. The 
owls were led by coach Ronnie 
Wenzler , who has coached the 
Owls on a voluntary basis since 
1995. The Owls were again unde- 
feated at the local level, achieving a 
perfect record of 9-0. Led by 
seniors Alex Debardeleben and 
Michael Murphy, both four-year 
lettermen, and by junior Scott 
Tashie, the team was destined for 
success. However, the 2002 team 
also found leadership in two fresh- 
men, Bobby Hudson and Alex 
Snyder, who each represented us 
well at the state tournament. Other 
team members included Watt Efird, 
Clay Chapman, Richard White, 
Matt Ganier, Will Owens, and Scott 
Wan-en. After a solid third-place 
finish at the regional tournament at 
Orgill Park, the Owls journeyed to 
Savannah, Tennessee for the 
Division II State Tournament. The 
Owls got off to an excellent start, 
with 75 's from both Alex 
Debardeleben and Scott Tashie. 
Coming into day two, the owls 
were tied for first with Chattanooga 


Baylor, last year's champions. 
Sadly, on day two, even though 
the Owls were consistent and 
played well, they failed to shoot 
low enough to secure their first title 
since 1996. Hudson led the team 
on day two, carving out a 76, with 
Tashie' s 77 and Murphy's 78 
securing our third-place finish 
behind Baylor and champion 
McCallie. Despite the owl's failure 
to secure a state championship, the 
future looks bright for the team. 
The leadership of Scott Tashie, 
coupled with the talent of current 
freshmen and sophomores are sure 
to give the Owls the opportunity 
for a state championship in the 
coming golf season. The future 
looks bright for this talented group.

Cross Country 

The MUS Cross Country team, led by Coach Tyler and seniors William Adams, Marshall Goldsmith Will Hunt 
Collins Roll, and Brad Whiteside, had one of its strongest seasons this year. The Harriers finished first in the region and 
grabbed a strong third-place finish in the state tournament. ' 

Coach Tyler started the season early this year, beginning with grueling practices in which the team ran an 
average of 10 miles a day. All this hard work paid off on August 27 when the team placed well in the Shelby County 
Cross Country Jamboree. A week later the team participated in its first Shelby County League Meet at Shelby Farms 
in which they placed third. MUS was merely resting, however, because the next week they faced their first big 
challenge at the Chickasaw Trails Invitational in Alabama. In a huge boost to the team's confidence, they surprised 
their opponents and placed first. 

Encouraged by this victory, MUS returned home and finished third in the League Meet on September 17 The 
next big meet was in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the Great American Invitational. Against tough competition the 
Owls posted an impressive fourth-place finish. Moving into October, MUS began to train harder in preparation for the 
tournaments at the end of the season. 

Their hard work was apparent on October 15, when the team placed third in the county championships. Collins 
Roll was the highest finisher for MUS, placing second. This high finish allowed the Harriers to compete in the regional

Championship. The race was to be run at Percy Warner State Park, an unfamiliar course for the Owls. To prepare for 
the championship, the team ran the course after they stepped off the bus on Friday. They then had to get up early 
Saturday morning to run for the title. The race began at 1 1 :30 AM , and in less than twenty minutes it was over. The

The MUS Basketball team, led by Coach Jerry Peters and 
seniors Ryan Baum, Andrew Hanover, Clay Chapman, Henry 
Talbot, Philip Blackett, John Philips, Derek Clenin, and Nathan 
Haynes, had another exciting season on the court this year. The 
Buzzards made it to the quarterfinals of the regional tournament 
before being stopped by Bishop Byrne. 

Coach Peters and the team started to prepare for the 
season early this year, beginning with a grueling Phy-D schedule 
of long distance running and drills. The Owls pre-season effort 
paid off when they won seven of their first eight games, including 
impressive wins over Mississippi powerhouse Jackson Academy 
and Division 2 rival Montgomery Bell. The team's first real test 
occurred at the prestigious Carbondale Tournament in Illinois 
during winter break. They placed an impressive third place 
amidst the tough competition, and returned home to prepare for 
the remainder of the season. 

Encouraged by their performance, MUS returned home to| 
face the Lausanne Lynx. After a tough game, the team fell victim 
to Lausanne's big-name talent. The Owls struggled through the 
next ten games of their season. They won only four, but they did 
score victories over regional rivalsBriarcrest and Christian

On February 7, the Owls played their homecoming game against 
Harding. Avenging an earlier loss to the Lions, the Owls put forth one of their 
best efforts of the season and won a clutch two-overtime game, 66-62. The 
Owls split their final four games of the season two and two, and began to 
focus on doing well in the State Tournament. 

The hard work paid off on February 22 when the team demolished 
Catholic in the first round of the Regional tournament, The Owls next 
opponent was the Scarlet Knights of Bishop Byrne. Although they fought 
hard, the Owls lost 43-55. 

By the end of the season the Owls had amassed an impressive 17-12 
record. Although they did not go as far as they hoped to in the playoffs, 
there were many highlights this season. The Owls defeated the Purple Wave 
twice during the season. Ryan Baum, who led the team in scoring with 16.5 
points per game, was a selection for the All-Metro Best of Preps team, while 
Derek Clenin proved to be an excellent point guard, averaging an 
outstanding two-to-one assist-to-turnover ratio during the year. 

The future continues to look promising for the Owls as returning 
underclassmen Philip Reed, Blake Weidman, Chris Cole, Lee Hoyle, John 
Conrad McCrary, and Marcus Moss build a strong base for next year's team.

The young but talented 2002-2003 Wrestling Owls took on 
the daunting challenge of improving upon the previous year's 
accolades. They would not fail. The team posted an impressive 
undefeated regular season under the watchful guidance of head 
coach Tommy Harrison. New coach Sean Genres added upon 
assistant coach Burton Milnor's experience. Their job was made 
easier by the return of five experienced seniors Geer Alexander, 
Matt Cohen, Charlie Gordon, Alan Humphreys, and the previous 
year's captain Blake Lindsay. Their leadership combined with 
eight returning underclassmen starters to form one of the strongest 
lineups MUS has seen. 

The season began with an impressive win over regional foe 
St. Benedict 66-15. This began a series of blowouts over White 
Station, McNairy County, and rival Briarcrest before the team 
placed ninth in the prestigious Blackhorse Invitational. The team 
then decimated Munford before a short break before Christmas 
Break. During the "Holiday" the team spent countless hours in the 
two-year old wrestling room preparing for the second half of the 
long season. The Owls honed their skills and took on defending 
Division 1, Region 8 Champion and perpetual powerhouse Bolton 
High School. The Owls pulled off a tight victory and stayed

undefeated. Continuing their domination, the Varsity Owls shellacked Memphis Catholic School while the freshman 
Owls showed the future of MUS wrestling with Garrett McClintock taking first and Mason George taking second in 
their respective weight classes. Winning a key dual meet against Division II contender Harding secured the Owls' 
number two seed in the Western Region. During the Bolton tournament, many individuals gained invaluable 
experience going into the team's biggest date, January 25 th , the Regional Tournament. Hoping to make it to the State 
Duals for the third year in a row Coach Tommy Harrison was proud of the second place finish by the team, which 
stifled the efforts of Briarcrest and Harding before losing a disappointing match to CBHS. 

The next weekend after defeating Millington 60-16, the Owls traveled to Clarksville for the State Dual 
tournament. The team was defeated by both Brentwood Academy and state runner-up Father Ryan. The Owls had a 

strong showing improving on the previous year's 
performance by winning several matches. Two 
weeks later the team traveled to Chattanooga for 
the State individual tournament. Senior Blake 
Lindsay took third place in the state, while junior 
Andrew Hooser finished fifth, and sophomore 
Nelson Rainey took a disappointing sixth-place 
finish, with high hopes for next season.

From "Go big team down the field!" to "It's great to be an MUS Owl!" the various sounds of the 
cheerleading squads have become a part of every student's psyche. A football or basketball game would 
seem completely devoid of MUS Spirit without the stirring, ardent chants of the cheerleaders. 

Braving the bitter cold of winter football games while wearing little more than their brand-new 
short skirt and halter-top uniform, these girls faithfully cheered on our team to a commendable seven 
victories this season. These young ladies began practice in April in an effort to provide quality cheering, 
and practice continued throughout the summer. Not only do they provide top-notch cheering for our fans, 
but they also manage to perform risky stunts intended to galvanize the crowd. Every Thursday afternoon, 
the girls decorate the football locker room and provide a feast of various homemade and store-bought cakes 
and cookies, a gesture which is the highlight of the week for many football players. Every now and then, 
the cheerleaders also put on a fundraising pizza sale for the student body. 

The Basketball cheerleaders stood alongside the team for its seventeen victories, two of which 
included CBHS poundings. While providing many of the same services to the school as the Football 
Cheerleaders, these girls lovingly cheer on the Basketball Team and lead the legendary MUS spirit that 
seems to place MUS a cut above the rest. Their dedication throughout the year is much appreciated, not 
only by the team, but also by the student body as a whole. 

In addition to the normal rigors of general cheerleading, the MUS Cheerleaders are an integral part 
of the famous Pep Rallies. From helping Mr. Haguewood and Mr. Matthews lead the student body in the 
traditional "15 Snappy Rahs" and the "Fight Song" to announcing the ever-controversial "Roll Calls", the 
cheerleaders prepare the school for a big win at the evening's homecoming game. 

These talented young ladies are an important part of MUS. Thanks to their efforts, spirit is high 
throughout the year, providing a key element in the tradition of athletic excellence.

Language Clubs 

Complementing MUS's outstanding language department are the 
Language Clubs. Though not widely recognized as clubs in the MUS community, 
the three language clubs provide some interaction between students of different 
grades taking the same language. 

The Latin Club is the most active of the Language Clubs. Annually, the 
Latin Club attends the Tennessee Junior Classical League Convention, in which 
MUS ' s finest Latin scholars participate in a variety of activities with students from 
other schools. These activities include Certamen (a Latin and Greek trivia 
competition), academic testing competitions, and a number of athletic events 
modeled on those of ancient times. 

The Spanish Club, despite recent attempts to revive it, does not participate 
in many activities, besides the occasional Spanish Club dinner at Taco Bell. 

The French Club, likewise, does not have many activities, but its members 
have been known to go to La Baguette and hold French-speaking contests, even 
for those students studying Latin or Spanish. 

Mr. Wayne Duff is the faculty advisor for the Latin Club, Mrs. Molly Bun- 
is the faculty advisor for the Spanish Club, and Dr. Reginald Dalle is the faculty 
advisor for the French Club.

The Owl's Hoot 

With CD's blaring over the speakers and the tattoo of 
fingers on keypads, the Upper School computer lab is always 
abuzz with activity on Saturday mornings. The majority of the 
noise comes from the diligent staff of the Owl '$ Hoot, our school 
newspaper. The Hoot, as it is affectionately known, comes out 
almost monthly. The papers have over 15 pages of exciting and 
enthralling material, including surveys, crossword puzzles, and 
controversial editorials. All of this is possible because of the 
hard work of the editors and staff, and the diligent advising of 
Mr. Norman Thompson. 

This year's co-editors-in-chief were Faris Haykal and 
J.K. Minervini. Stressing that the paper was going in an 
entirely new direction this year, these two pioneered the 
Saturday -morning meeting system, which entails 
newspaper meetings three Saturdays a month to ensure 
the quality and the on-time arrival of all the paper's 
editions. The editors themselves put in many extra hours 
of service, industriously laying out and editing the paper. 

Students and faculty were very pleased with the 
result, and they praised this year's paper as the best they 
have seen in years. They commended the excellent 
writing and photography, as well as the thought-provoking 
content. The Owl's Hoot editorial section approached many 
important issues this year, such as affirmative action, the Iraqi 
conflict, and possible sexism at MUS, all of which aroused 
debate throughout the student body. 

Taken in retrospect, this year's school newspaper was 
both informative and entertaining, a delight to both readers and

Every year the MUS yearbook 
staff faces many questions and challenges: 
Will there be good pictures this year? Are 
the proofs going to get to the publisher in 
time? Where is that Cross Country copy? 
And (most importantly) where in the heck 
is last year's yearbook? Despite all this 
adversity, this year's editors have worked 
hard to produce a quality yearbook that 
students can look at and be proud of. 

This mammoth 190-page Owl you 
are now reading is the product of hundreds 
of hours of work on Saturday mornings. 
For the first time in recent memory, most 
of the work for this year's book was 
actually done on time, and not in a furious 
tornado of activity beginning halfway 
through February and ending mid-summer. 
The 2002-2003 staff came together and, 
under the leadership of editor-in-chief 
Conor Quinn, has produced an excellent 
record of the school year, a historical 
account and a source of nostalgia for years 
to come.

The MUSe 

George Bernard Shaw once said "without art, the crudeness of reality 
would make the world unbearable." The MUSe literary magazine serves as our 
school's artistic lifeline, protecting us from the ravaging philistine hordes of cultural 

This year, the MUSe went under a few large changes. For years the staff 
had been divided into waning factions with the "poet-boyz" under the poetry edito 
warring against the prose editor and his "proseys"; while the editor-in-chief 
desperately tried to maintain the order in this war- torn world of pretty pictures and 
pastel art. This feudalistic style of editorship slowed down productivity and made a 
well-balanced MUSe difficult. 

This year, in a literary coup, editor-in-chief Michael Morisy revolted against 
the ruling dogma that has oppressed the MUSe and it's staff for generations. 
Breaking down the walls of the artistic conflict and diversity, Morisy changed the 
entire concept of "section editor," giving each editor his own little section of the 
MUSe to layout. Friendship flowed as all editors were allowed to dip into all forms 
of art and to share all works, by all contributors, equally; with Morisy himself, 
guiding them and guarding them from above. 

With a vigor and determination unseen by the publication in years the 
MUSe editors and staff gathered their creative energies and hurled themselves into 
battle, forging what looks to be one of the finest MUSe's in recent history. Already 
eclipsing last years 

MUSe at a whopping ■".'■' _ ; ;mM , 

eighty pages of full sized 
print, this MUSe seems 
to finally have regained 
the power and glory that 
its forefathers possessed. J 
While the 2003 MUSe is 
a mighty juggernaut of 
poetry it also maintains a 
lighter more carefree 
attitude that has been :Z

In another daring feat, Michael has also attempted to bring the MUSe into the 21 st century

talent verbally will be recognized. The Ml ISe is evolving. 

While the entire staff has worked hard, this year's MUSe would have been completely

&fonor Council 

The Honor System has been a tradition at MUS since its founding in 1 893 and is inter- 
preted and governed by the Honor Council, which acts as an impartial court in hearing the 
cases that come before it. The system encourages mutual trust and confidence among student; 
and their teachers. The Council may make recommendations concerning any action to be take 
against violators of the system, but the administration has the final decision regarding those 
recommendations. To maintain such a system, it is the responsibility of every student to be 
honorable himself, both in word and deed, and to report any person violating the Honor Code 
This responsibility, taken by the students, is what makes the Honor System thrive. 

President Marshall Goldsmith, Vice President Andy Garrett, Secretary Andrew Hanover 
and Grade Representatives Edward Taylor, Gordon Conaway, Spencer Heflin, Weller Drennor 
Hunter Adams, and Phillip Flinn served on this year's Honor Council. Mr. Thompson served 
as faculty advisor. Marshall did an excellent job as President of the 2002-2003 Honor Coun- 
cil, and he will be remembered as one of the best Presidents in recent memory. 

"For in short, the spirit of the Honor System is a way of life, and that way of life is the 
way of Honor." -Bernard Mayo, Prof., University of Virginia.

Student Counci 

This year's Student Council once again 
was busy thinking of ways to entertain their 
peers. Under the leadership of President John 
Harkess, the Student Council succeeded in their 
goal and surpassed all expectations. The Student 
Council founded new traditions such as Field 
Day and Quiz Bowl, while also rejuvenating old 
traditions such as Fall Fest (with the return of 
mud wrestling and the car bash) and Mock 
Graduation, The Executive Committee 
performed their jobs to near perfection and 
supported President Harkess throughout the year, 
Vice-President William Adams managed all Pep 
Rallies and took over the President's duties in his 
absence. Commissioner of Social Events Tyler 
Wohrman beautifully orchestrated the dances and 
chose great bands for both Homecomings and 
Spring Formal. Commissioner of Special 
Activities Allen Humphreys provided weekly 
distractions for all students with his dodgeball 
games and eating contests, Secretary-Treasurer 
Brandon Arrindell took notes during all meetings 
and managed the pizza sales. Commissioner of 
Student Welfare Robert Snowden represented his 
peers on the Disciplinary Committee and 
consistently highlighted Monday chapels with 
his funny announcements. Finally, Commissioner 
of Student Services Alex "Boom Boom" Pao 
insured that the senior lounge was complete with

Government Club 

The government club is by far 
the largest student organization at 
MUS. The club's long-time sponsor 
is Mr, Guy Amsler. This year's 
executive board was made up of 
president Andy Garrett, senior vice 
presidents Philip Blackett, John 
Harkess, Barlow Mann, Conor 
Quinn, Faris Haykal, and Babu 
Rayudu, and junior vice presidents 
Adam Kaplan and Paul Moinester. 
The club's purpose is to inform 
students about international and 
domestic issues and to debate those 
issues. It does so by offering club 
members participation in three 
activities: the YMCAModel United 

Above: The Costa Rica delegation 
(Stephen Kriger, Gordon Conaway,

ing Research and Outstanding Resolu- 
tion at YMCA Model UN. 

Nations in Nashville, the Mid-South 
Model United Nations at Rhodes 
College, and the YMCA Youth 
Legislature in Nashville. 

The YMCA Model United 
Nations, held in downtown Nashville, 
is a simulation of the United Nations 
in New York. At this conference, 
most delegates choose a country to 
represent, write a position paper 
describing their country' s background 
and views on given topics, and finally 
write a resolution to be debated at the 
conference. Other delegates represent 
their countries in the Security 
Council, in the International Court of 
Justice, or serve on the International 
Press Corps. MUS had yet another 
successful year at the conference. 
Conference officers from MUS were 
President of the General Assembly 
Andy Garrett, Vice Presidents Paul 
Bunch, John Harkess, and Barlow 

Mid-South Model United 
Nations, sponsored by Rhodes 
College, takes a slightly different 
approach to simulating the real U.N. 
Delegates at this conference work 
individually to write position papers 
and draft resolutions, representing 
their countries' views on two specific 
global issues. At the conference, 
delegates work together to write a 
resolution pleasing to all nations. 
Rhodes Model UN is the least 
participated in activity of the 
Government Club, and this year's 
delegation was only three members. 

The YMCA Youth 
Legislature, held in the state capital 
building, instructs students in the 
democratic government in our 

country. Students write bills to 
deal with issues facing the state of 
Tennessee and debate them in the 
Red House, Red Senate, Blue 
House, and Blue Senate. The Red 
chambers are for experienced 
participants, while the Blue 
chambers serve as training ground 
for new representatives. Other 
components include the governor's 
cabinet, the lawyer component, 
lobbyist firms, and the press corps. 
Officers from MUS at this 
conference included Philip 
Blackett, Paul Moinester, Robert 
Rogers, Adam Kaplan, Conor 
Quinn, John Harkess, Dara Chan, 
and Brad Whiteside.

Civic Service 

Service, as defined by the Community Creed, qualifies as one of the seven ideals governing student attitude and 
behavior. The Civic Service Organization, chaired by Ken Farmer and advised by Mr. Smythe, provided plenty of 
opportunities for students to give back to both community and school. 

Ken decided this year to get away from small, one-day projects, and, instead, focus on developing long-ter 
relationships with the city and performing more permanent projects. The Reading Bridge was open to students throughout tJ 
first semester, allowing students to read to kindergarteners at Martin Luther King Elementary School each week. In addition 
tutoring and basketball coaching at Kipp Academy on Saturdays was open to interested students, along with tutoring at 
Second Presbyterian Church on Thursdays. The Civic Service organization continued its relationship with Kipp Academy 
during a home football game by organizing pre-game activities and food for the children before allowing the children to 
observe the game from the student section. After the game, a dance was provided, with proceeds going to charity. Also new 
this year, the Civic Service Organization joined the Student Council in sponsorship of a quite successful Fall Fest. 
Additionally, students had the opportunity to volunteer at a run benefiting Polycystic Kidney Disease and donate books for 
those in need. 

Civic Service Charity Week proved to be very successful Three guest speakers prompted students to give 
blood, tutor, and visit the Civil Rights Museum downtown. The week culminated With the talent show, a popular annual eve 
hosted this year by Ken, Shahzad Khan, Mr. Smythe, and Mr. Olson. The show consisted of multiple bands, comedy sketci 
break dancing, musical solos, and an entertaining rap video. AD proceeds went to the Habitat for Humanity house that MUS 
and Hutchison students constructed in the spring. 

Vice-chairs this year included 
Shahzad Khan, Chase Carlisle, Farris Haykal, 
Philip Blackett, Andrew Hanover, and Edward 
Taylor. The hard work and innovative ideas of 
Ken and Mr. Smythe established new 
relationships within the city that will greatly 
benefit the future work of the Civic Service

The mock trial team performed very well in this year's competition. 
The team benefited greatly from the leadership of Mrs. Elizabeth Crosby, 
Bailey Leopard, and MUS alumni Ralph Gibson and Jim Robinson. The Red 
Team, which consisted of more experienced members, included attorneys JK 
Minervini, Carie Balton, and Loren McRae, and witnesses William Adams, 
Barlow Mann, Leslie Montesi, Anna Burhop, Anne Marie Dudas, and Tyler 
Fisher. The Blue Team members were attorneys Alex Chinn, Trey Bowden, 
and Aaron Markowitz, along with witnesses Joy Agho, John KJinke, Katy 
Langston, Kyle Fong, Andrew Gordon, and William Brandon. 

The competition took place during the first week of Feburary. On the 
first night, the Red Team defeated Cordova as defense. Neither team played 
Tuesday evening. On night three, the Red Team was victorious once again, 
this time over St. Benedict as prosecution. That night, the Blue Team also 
defeated their opponent, Ridgeway, as prosecution. Unfortunately, both 
teams suffered losses on Thursday night. The Red Team was defense against 
a very good Houston team in a heated match. The Blue Team played against 
an eerily synchronized St. Mary's team. These losses brought an end to the 
teams' aspirations of state competition. The Red Team's Carie Balton and JK 
Minervini took turns winning best attorney. Alex Chinn was awarded best 
attorney for the Blue Team on both nights of competition. Best witnesses 
were Joy Agho for the prosecution and William Brandon for the defense. 

Special thanks to all coaches and the attorneys who watched 
scrimmages, Mr. Eikner, and team captains JK Minervini, Carie Balton, and 
William Adams. The eight senior team members will be greatly missed after 
this year; however, those who remain show great promise for next year.

Beg to Differ, Mils' s resident singing 
ensemble, had an extremely successful year. A 
nationally renowned male a cappella choir, the group 
performed surprisingly well for a group comprised 
of mostly underclassmen. Under the excellent 
guidance of music guru John Hiltonsmith, BTD 
performed all over the city, dazzling audiences with 
their unique repertoire. The troupe even attended an 
a cappella contest in Atlanta in which they did an 
outstanding job.

The group sang many different songs this 
year, including some Southern gospel, modern pop. 
Catholic hymns, the national anthem, and, as 

always, the MUS alma mater. They 
also brought back such old favorites as 
It 's All Right and The Lion Sleeps

Memphis University School has always touted its excellent academics, and the Math Department is one of the 
school's best examples of the school's quality. In order to gain a grasp on the "universal language," students are required 
to take at least five full years of math. Through the curriculum students learn both basic mathematic principles such as the 
Pythagorean Theorem as well as the more complicated concept of finding the slope of tangential lines through the use of 

The students' journey through "Math Magicland" begins in seventh-grade Pre- Algebra under the tutelage of Mari 
Burke or Betty Williams. In eighth grade, students are divided into classes of either Algebra I taught by Mr. Bruce Ryan 
and Mrs. Burke or Algebra Essentials, which Mr. Joe Tyler teaches. The truly talented students begin their advanced 
courseworkin Mrs. Williams' Accelerated Algebra I class. 

As soon as students enter the Upper School they are subjected to the vagaries of triangles and the horrors of 
mathematical proofs in Geometry, taught by either Mrs. Diana Moore or Mr. Darin Clifft. Students willing to brave the 
truly terrible trauma can take Accelerated Geometry with Mr. Ryan or Mrs. Moore. In 10 th grade students must take 
Algebra II with Mrs. Susan Quinn, Mr. John Knaff, or Mr. Tom Brown. Students who want to learn how to be "bad to 
the bone" and how to impress girls with "the Math Dance" take Mr. Murphy' s Accelerated Algebra II. 

Now almost at the end of their mathematical careers, students may either take Function and Data Analysis with 
Mrs. Quinn, or venture onward into Pre-Calculus with Mr. Murphy or Mrs. Nancy Gates. Juniors with more inquisitive 
minds take Mr. Mike Gunn's Accelerated Pre-Calculus. Once 1 1 th grade is over, students can now take any one of three 
A.P. courses. Mr. Clifft offers A.R Statistics, while Mr. Murphy challenges his students in A.P. Calculus AB. For the 
"few good men" who have stuck with M.U.S.'s demanding accelerated track, Mrs. Gates' A.P. Calculus BC is the last lej 
of their "mathmagical" journey.

Many would call the History Department the backbone of MUS, and those people would probably be right. 
Under the leadership of Department Chair Dr. John Harkins, an AP and regular European History teacher, the History 
Department allows students to learn about many different cultures, to examine trends throughout time around the world, 
and to see how economic, political, religious, geographical, and cultural factors affected world history. 

In the Lower School, 7* Graders begin their MUS history career with World Area Studies, a general evaluation 
of different cultures taught by new teacher Mr. Shaun Genres and Mr. Guy Amsler, In the 8 th grade students take a 
general overview of American History taught by Mr. Genres and Dr. Robert "Doc" Winfrey. After these two courses, 
students are ready for their Upper School history career. 

In the 9 th grade, students take a one-semester course of Ancient and Medieval History, taught by Mr. Patrick 
McCarroll. This required course gives students a good background for all other history classes. In the 10 th grade, 
students are given a choice of European History, taught by Mr. McCarroll, Dr. Harkins, and Doc Winfrey, or AP 
European History, a much more difficult course taught by department chair Dr. Harkins. In the 1 1 tb grade students are 
faced with a similar choice of AP American History taught by Mr. Eric Berman and the regular section taught by Upper 
School Principal Mr. Barry Ray and Mr. Amsler. 

In their senior year students have a wide range of History electi ves to choose from. Coach Jerry Peters offers AP 
and regular United States and Comparative Government to those students interested in the political sciences. Students 
more intrigued by the arts can choose between AP Art History with Mr. Berman and the new Humanities course, joint 
taught by Mr. Berman and Mr. Russell. The more adventurous senior may choose to enroll in International Issues, the 
new Co-Edge course joint taught by Mr. Berman and Hutchison teacher Dr. Paula Barnes.

The Science Department of MUS is one of the smallest at MUS, but it offers one of the most useful of all the 
curricula. Offering an important grounding in the fundamentals of several branches of science, the Sciences provide 
training in laboratory procedure, familiarity with equipment, and problem solving ability throughout the required two 
years of Lower School and two years of Upper School science classes. 

Students begin their scientific careers at MUS with the one-semester course Force, Motion, and Energy, 
which provides a sound understanding of the basic principles of, you guessed it, force, motion, and energy. Through 
experimentation, reading, and problem solving, students begin to learn the foundation of the sciences from Mr. Bill 
Matthews or Mr. Andy Saunders. Eighth Grade students study the basics of Earth Science, including mineral 
identification, weather patterns, and tectonic movements, from Mr. Saunders, Mr. Matthews, and Mr. Beck. 

Upon entering the Upper School, all freshmen are required to take Introductory Physical Science. This full 
year course taught by Mr. Beck, Mr. Matthews, and Mrs. Victoria Daniel, gives students a more advanced look at the 
basics of science then they were given in the Lower School. Students explore the atomic model of matter through 
many laboratory experiments. 

In the tenth grade, students make a choice of classes. Some students choose to take Chemistry, taught by Mrs. 
Daniel and Dr. Kilzer, a full-year course that explores the elements and the laws of nature through lab work. Others 
may choose to take Biology with Mr. Saunders or Mr. Bill Taylor. 

In their junior year some students choose to end their science career at MUS, but most continue on to either 
Biology or Chemistry, depending on what class they took as sophomores, or they may choose to move on to the 
Advanced Placement level of their science of choice. 

As seniors, students have a choice of regular or AP Physics, both taught by Mr. John Olson. In the regular 
section students study the basics of a college Physics course including mechanics, light and sound, electricity and 
magnetism, and modern physics. The AP course represents a full college-level course and contains more specific 
information than the regular section.

The aim of the MUS Religion program is to give students a firm* well-rounded background in the field. In the spirit of the 
school's mission to raise its boys in a strong ^Christian tradition," seventh graders take a course in Old Testament history, 
taught by Mr. Haguewood and Mr, Dent, This course concentrates on a careful, informed reading of selected portions of the 
Old Testament. Emphasis is given to the historical context of the stories and their development. Students are required to take 
a similar course in New Testament history during their freshman year. The life and teachings of Jesus, the ministry of Paul, and 
the development of early Christianity are the three main facets of this course. 

After establishing a firm foundation in the historical tradition of the Bible, pupils can expand their knowledge of Religion 
through the abundance of elective courses. Perhaps the most popular elective choice is Philosophy & Ethics, which offers an 
introduction to some of the major schools of philosophical thought, both classical and modern. Students focus on the study ol 
the philosophies themselves before discussing current values and problems. Another popular choice is Comparative Religion 
This course offers a survey of prehistoric and primitive religion that leads into the history of contemporary Eastern and 
Western religions. Finally there is Christian Theology, a course which emphasizes the important thinkers who have shaped 
Christian thought in the West. With such a wide range of courses a student can be sure that he will leave MUS with a well- 
rounded basis in religion that suits his personal needs.

Fine Arts 

As you enter the fine arts wing on a dreary Tuesday morning during seventh period, you can hear the loud bangs I 
clatters of hammers and the whir of saws, but above all of this noise you can hear Mr, Saunders telling the dedicated student 
the Theater Production class to work harder and get things done. 

The Fine Arts department of MUS has several classes offering a variety of different art to MUS students. Mr. John Hiltonsn 
heads the Fine Arts department and teaches several classes. Mr. Hiltonsmith leads the eighth grade choir first semester, teac 
music to the eighth grade second semester, instructs a music theory course for upperclassmen, and finally directs the internatioi 
award-winning a cappella group, Beg To Differ. 

Mr. Bowman, the visual arts teacher, also leads a variety of art courses. Art 7 is a one-semester course that serves as 
introduction to art for the younger student. He also teaches the Art I and Art II courses for upper school students to take betw 
their freshman and senior years. These classes dig a little deeper into the many elements of drawing and painting. Every year, 
art classes display their work in the Fine Arts Wing for all students to admire. 

Woodworking is a popular class among MUS students. Taught by Mr. Schmitt and alumnus Richard Cowan, woodwork 
is offered to both juniors and seniors. Each student must create a piece which shows that he has mastered the skills taught in 
class. When Mr. Schmitt' s students are asked, "do you take wood?" the answer is usually an emphatic yes. 

Mr. Schmitt also teaches a photography class to seniors. Each student must provide his own 35mm SLR camera i 
supplies, so that he can shoot and develop his own film, as well as create prints. Students explore such elements of photography 
line, shape, color, and contrast as they work to compile a portfolio showing their artistic progress. 

Finally, for those students who aren't as hands-on in the arts, there are two classes offered as Fine Arts credits that sur 
history. Mr. Eric Herman offers APArt History, a survey of humankind's artistic expression in painting, sculpture, and architect 
from the cave paintings of the 
Stone Age to the abstract 
compositions of the post- 
modern era. Mr. Russell and 
Mr. Berman joint-teach a 
humanities course, which 
analyzes literature and 
philosophy in addition to 
artistic developments.

department is an essential part

Walking down the hall, a strange perfume piques your curiosity. Could it be a . . . girl? The 
wall of students parts, and you see a group of Hutchison girls gracefully striding down the corridor. 
What overwhelming force could break the forces of gender segregation? 

Only one courageous program could "dare to disturb the universe", Co-Edge. The dawning 
of the age Co-Edge has enabled seniors, a few juniors, and one or two sophomores to take classes at 
our sister school of Hutchison and vice-versa. Quoting the Co-Edge website, "Typically, MUS 
students take advantage of the Fine Arts courses at Hutchison, while Hutchison students generally 
participate in MUS Social Studies classes. However, students may take courses in other areas with the 
approval of the program' s coordinators." A team-taught International Issues Seminar by Mr. Eric 
Berman and Dr. Paula Barnes carries the Co-Edge brunt. This class alternates between the MUS and 
Hutchison campus. International Issues addresses many of the current, world issues that affect us 
every day even if they do not make the headlines every morning. The class also brings guest lecturers 
to shed some light on topics that they have studied thoroughly. 

The jointly taught International Issues class is the first of its kind, but for many years 
Hutchison students have come to MUS for Mr. Peter's AP American and Comparative Government, 
Mr. Olson's AP Physics, Mr. Smythe's Christian Theology, Mr. Koehn's Psychology, and various 

Though Co-Edge is met with opposition from both sides, the majority of students agree with 
our Headmaster, Mr. Haguewood, when he said, "I believe that to develop well-rounded students, we 
must offer the opportunity to have an academic experience with members of the opposite sex, an 
experience which will allow them to appreciate one another as academic equals and which allows 
them to interact on an intellectual level."

Ah, RE. Does any other class evoke such fond memories as Physical Education? Be it the pure 
joy of tackling some freshman in knee-football or the pain and suffering the Physical Fitness test 
causes, every day of gym class offers a new, unique experience. 

MUS has quite an impressive athletic facility. With lacrosse, soccer, baseball, and 2 football 
fields, a recently redone track, two gymnasiums, numerous locker rooms, and a well-equipped weight 
room, students at MUS are offered many opportunities to increase their physical ability. However, the 
ultimate method to becoming more physically fit is to take RE. 

All Lower Schoolers are required to take RE. in both 7 th and 8 th grade. Coaches Tommy 
Harrison, Matt Bakke (also the Department Head), and Phillip Massey keep these youngsters in line 
while introducing them to the realm of gym class. After each rigorous quarter of running ins and outs 
and cross-countries and struggling to bench the bar, all students take the Physical Fitness test, which 
determines about 40% of their grade. Additional exercise is gained in the forms of knee-football, RE. 
basketball (a different sport entirely from real basketball), and moving heavy things for the Athletic 

Upon entering the Upper School, those students not participating in or managing a school sport 
move up to the Varsity level of RE. Coach Orlando "the O-Show" McKay's rallying cries of "Get 
stout!" and Coach Bubba Burr's sheer intimidation help their students to make excellent scores on the 
Physical Fitness test, the same one that the Lower Schoolers take. Varsity RE. follows the same 
curriculum as Lower School RE., but with more basketball and a more odiferous locker room. 

Coach David Ferebee is the school's athletic trainer. He makes sure that all participants in 
Varsity RE. and the lesser sports (football, basketball, etc.) stay healthy and return to the playing field 
as soon as possible.

One of the man} skills the MUS studenl is pri\ ileged to learn is the ability to speak, read. 01 
foreign languages. Whether declining piiella or conjugating manger, students are bombarded with a fusillade of 
grammar drills and pronunciation exercises in order to become proficient enough in their language to not acciden- 
tally say "The sausage devoured the girl." 

Language study begins with required Latin I in the eighth grade under the tutelage of Mr. Ellis and Mr. 
Duff. For those w ho decide to leave the study ol Latin. Dr. Dalle offers French to those of a more Parisian 
persuasion. Students hone their French grammar and enrich their vocabulary through extensive use of the French 
In .Action video series starring Valerie Allain as Mireille Belleau. 

Students who leave Latin may also choose to studs Spanish, and a large majority does. Spanish is taught 
by the superb team of Mrs Molly Burr. Mr. Vincent Mutzi, and Mrs. Beba Heros. 

If you ask them, onh the best students continue in the study of Latin, stud) ing Caesar's De Bella Gallico 
with Mr. Duff in Latin II, Cicero's First Oration against Catiline with Mr. Duff in Latin 111. The sell-styled finest

One of the most important skills used In the real world has to be the use of our native tongue. Knowledge of 
English grammar, vocabulary, composition, and even culture or legend are important in today's society. We become more 
well-rounded and educated when we understand the literature and language that creates the background for our world. 
Proficiency in the English language helps other important skills surface, and the MUS English Department certainly helps 
its students develop them. 

In the seventh grade, the English classes consist mainly of creating a strong foundation in basic grammar, 
vocabulary, and mythology. Mrs. Crippen and Mr. Torrey take on the task of teaching the seventh graders the basics. As z 
eigth grader, one continues to explore the English language and reads more traditional English literature, while Mr. Shclton 
Mr. Russell, Mr. Torrey, and Mrs. Crosby employ creative techniques to further students' knowledge. Dr. Gross, Mr. 
Eikner, and Mr. Thompson teach the freshmen to improve their writing skills, use proper grammar, and understand 

In the tenth grade, the curriculum focuses on the greatest works of American literature. Mr. Askew, Mrs. Crosby, 
Dr. Baer, and Mrs, MeCarroU teach the themes of literature that define American culture. As juniors, students have a choic 
of English classes. For the first semester, eleventh graders may take either Junior English Review, taught by Dr. Gross, Mr 
Askew, and Mr. Russell , or AP English 1 1 , taught by Mr. Shelton, For the second semester, juniors may either take British 
Literature with Mr. Eikner or continue with AP English, First-semester seniors take AP English with Mr. Thompson or 
British Literature II with Mrs. McCarroll, Mr. Eikner, or Mr. Thompson. Seniors have a wide variety of English elect! ves t 
choose from for their second semester: Arthurian Tradition with Mrs. Crippen, Dramatic Literature with Dr. Gross.

Leigh Windsor MacQueen, age 68, passed away at his home on March 6, 2003, The former teacher, administrator, 
historian, and archivist dedicated nearly four decades of his life to education and the establishment of MUS as an unrivaled 
academic institution in Memphis, His loss will be felt deeply. 

"The death of Leigh MacQueen is a great loss for all of us who love the school and its mission. Though 
officially retired since 1998, he served as our archivist (who better to meticulously organize and catalogue the school's 
history?) and planned to lead a student group to France this summer to study the life of Napoleon as part of our MUS In 
Europe program. For almost forty years he was the quiet academic conscience of the school, submitting all that we did 
to one dispassionate test: would it make MUS a stronger academic institution?*' said Headmaster Ellis Haguewood. 

Leigh MacQueen was the embodiment of the ideals MUS students and faculty value, with his calm and quiet 
nature, his extensive but never patronizing knowledge, and his willingness to help whenever possible. 

How appropriate that Mr. MacQueen spent his last years at MUS as the school's archivist. Several days a week, 
he occupied a small room on the second floor of the Joseph R. Hyde, Jr. Library Learning Center where he catalogued 
and arranged the valuable mementos of MUS's more than 100~year history. The task was a perfect fit for the man who 
had been responsible for or experienced first-hand the most important school events since 1961. 

Miss Mary Nell Easum, now the school's Registrar, worked closely with Mr. MacQueen both before and after 
his official retirement. "He was a unique person — so talented in so many different areas with unending energy and 
enthusiasm," she said. "The early days were exciting with the growth of the school and the expansion of the curriculum. 
Leigh was never without a new idea. It was fortunate for MUS that Colonel Lynn, Mr. Thorn, and Mr. Haguewood saw 
his talents and let him use them." 

His career at MUS began simply. Former Headmaster Colonel Ross M. Lynn hired Mr, MacQueen to teach 
history and science classes and to direct the physical education program. Soon after, he was named History Department 
chairman and became increasingly involved with student activities and curriculum enhancement. He instituted the 
Advanced Placement program in 1963, took charge of graduation exercises, co-founded the Humanities course, began 
editing the school's catalog, inaugurated the student directory known as the UBook, and helped the Student Council 
rewrite their constitution so students could have a stronger voice in school governance. 

Mr. MacQueen was named academic dean in 1966 and founded the Academic Council in 1968, a group still 
actively involved in the curriculum planning of the school. He continued to serve as academic dean, as well as Upper 
School principal, and associate headmaster until May 1994 when he returned to his first love— teaching history. During 
his tenure, he designed the school seal and banner, several academic award medals, installed the now obsolete television 
studio, and designed the academic mace in honor of Headmaster Emeritus Gene Thorn. 

Mr. MacQueen was a fair and respected teacher. Alumni have been deeply saddened by the sudden loss of one of 
their favorite teachers. "I have so many rich memories of Mr. MacQueen. He taught me to study history and encouraged 
me as an actor, I am a better man for having studied with him. He possessed rare classroom genius— the ability to teach 
not only the subject matter, but also the love of studying it," said the Revered Frank Crumbaugh* 70, of Holy Innocents 
Church in Beach Haven, New Jersey. "The old boys whom he taught to think historically are reeling, struggling to face 
our own mortality signaled so vividly in the death of our beloved teacher." 

"We will miss him, but we salute his enduring legacy. He lives on in much of what we do and how we do it today; 
a rigorous liberal arts curriculum, strong Advanced Placement courses, and an unyielding commitment to building the very 
best faculty possible in a secondary school," said Haguewood.

At the end of each school year, about thirty people are named to various editing and 
staff positions for the yearbook, and each year, a core group of about four seniors lead the 
effort, with a few underclassmen scurrying about, doing odd jobs to help finish the book. 
Though it is my name you see at the top of the masthead, though you see only me making 
announcements each Monday in chapel, you would not be holding a yearbook were it not 
for John Harkess, Hill Stoecklein, and, especially, Lee McNabb. These three have kept the 
book afloat these long months since we four sat down last August to plan the year, and, 
despite some unexpected difficulties, we all have had fun producing the book. The credit 
for this book goes to them. All errors, omissions, or lapses in judgement are, of course, 

The job of the Editor-in-Chief is never an easy one, but this year, on top of all the 
usual responsibilities, I was faced with the task of redeeming the somewhat tarnished 
reputation of the yearbook to both the student body and the administration. In all 
honesty, I do not know whether the book you now hold will accomplish this task, but I 
hope that you appreciate this year's Owl You hold in your hand the fruit of many hours 
of labor, of countless Saturday morning work sessions and hurried post-graduation 
proofreadings. Enjoy. 

Humbly Submitted, 

Conor Quinn, Editor-in-Chief
